A follow-up to The Olympians, this Waldorf-inspired block uses the stories of well-known Greek mortals and demigods as told in D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths - Prometheus, Pandora, Pan, Echo and Narcissus, the Muses, Orpheus, Midas, and Sisyphus - to focus on the elements of story and to improve your child's writing skills. 

 

It includes an end-of-block project based on your child's choice of an epic hero's tale: Danaüs, Perseus, and the Gorgon; or Heracles; or Theseus; or The Golden Fleece; and a bonus mini-lesson for transitioning from the study and stories of Greek mythology to the stories of Greek history based on "The Apples of Love and the Apple of Discord."

 

You'll find lots of extras including connections to art, music, the birth of Western theatre, and more. Make Pandora's box and a laurel crown, as well as simple Greek-inspired form drawing.
